KFC chickens out

BY Dawn in General |

 In response to pressures from PETA, KFC Canada has given into their demands to start offering vegan options on their menu. "Un-chicken" nuggets will soon be available in the Canada locations. But really, would any serious vegetarian really need or want to even step foot in a KFC? I've been fortunate to have lived in cities like San Francisco and New York, where I have never found myself without plenty of meat-free options, and I realize not everyone ... Read More

 The worst feeling during the summer is having my body stick to leather, whether it's car seats, leather corsets during S&M night at the local rave, or purses. That's why the number one item on my summer shopping list is a lightweight purse. These two bags from Kid Robot do well to hold all my junk while still giving some flair to my outfits. They also have a bazillion pockets held either by zippers or my personal favorite, magnets. Keep cool during this ... Read More
      That is me in the sweet green dress, next to my predicted winner Rece Steele. Over my right shoulder is my girl Mac Tyi, she just dropped a new single. Hedonis is behind me and Lady Merk is next to Chiba cut off. I told you about those girls in blogs past. Looking at this picture me and Rece could be twins, similar hair, smile, gold chains. No wonder they didn't put me on, it would be to confusing. I also heard through the grapevine ... Read More
If you're not staying inside tonight to hide from the heat and make stencils and paper orangutans (not that you really need an excuse to get your craft on), you should totally check out the free comedy show over at Lolita Bar. That's where I'll be at least.Two of my lovely ladies help organize "Tell Your Friends," every Monday at 8 p.m. at 266 Broome St., and it's sure to be worth some laughs.Tonight's line up is Leo Allen, Tom Shillue, Liam McEneaney, ...

My first fondant cake

BY Team Intern in General |

Yesterday was my dads birthday and also my folks 20th anniversary.  I spent all weekend making this cake, and I think the results were smashing. Read more after the jump. I really love to cook and I love to bake doubly so. My parents love to eat. So I figured I'd give them a wonderful meal at my exclusive restaurant , Chez Claire (aka my kitchen).  Dinner was: A marinated shell steak, a garlic mashed potato, and fresh creamed spinach.  The Cake: ...

     So since Jess posted her favorite 'avoid the heat at all costs' indoor activity, I figured I would post mine for even more things to do for hot (in all senses of the word) crafty girls. Lately ever since I found this website, stencilpunks, I have been addicted to making stencils. Nothing in my path has escaped my stenciling rampage, tee shirts, pants, jewelry boxes, everything. Even the cats gone into hiding. For the longest time, I wanted ... Read More

MOCCA rocks.

BY Sarah J. in General |

So everyone knows that comic cons and such are sausage fests, right? I mean, what's a girl to do if she craves a little sequential art without being skeezed on or looked at like an alien life form? Thankfully, events geared towards the indie comics crowd are much more woman-friendly, and the fundraiser this past weekend for the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art was full of rad ladies doing their thing and hawking their wares. Tara McPherson, who Elle ... Read More

OMG NDD!

BY Lisa in General |

  Why didn’t anybody tell me it was National Doughnut Day???? I just wasted all my stomach room on cheese. Arrgh! But who am I kidding, I have no problem celebrating NDD tomorrow with an old-fashioned. Or the next day with a glazed twist. Or the day after that with a jelly-filled. Mmmm…doughnuts. And who knew the doughnut had such altruistic origins? When I get off work I’m heading straight to Doughnut Plant. ... Read More
  There's an installation up in Brooklyn and its so cute it brings me to tears. This installation by Artist Paul St. George is a giant Telectroscope which allows people in New York to see London, and vice versa. The lines are extremely long, but you can say hello (or cheers!) to a person across the pond. Even cuter, they have a fast track option--need a buisness meeting? marriage proposal? send a message to a friend?  Anyways, my boyfriend lives in ... Read More
